Yeah, I was happier than I expected with this set. I still would have bought more than one but for the Vader figure. Still might pick another up and do some custom with that Vader armor.
The lamest complaint I've heard about this set is the inclusion of the WEB cannon. Some just can't get past the idea that this is just a weapon and wasn't necessarily exclusive to one planet. Some people have no imagination, but my kids certainly didn't mind putting the stormtrooper and Vader behind it.
(See, Vader ordered the stormtrooper to shoot down that TIE Bomber that was stolen by a rebel operative masquerading as an AT-ST driver but everyone knows stormies can't hit the broad side of a bantha so Vader tossed the soldier out of the way, took control of the cannon, and brought down the bomber himself!)
Sweeeet! Yeah, the EWEB is definitely an all-climates weapon. That was even the case when I played with the vintage figures (though they were new at the time). Good to hear your kids have great imaginations, PL!
